3 bags full

I get together once a week and knit with a group of friends. We always have the best time laughing, knitting and eating! One week a few weeks back, it was suggested that we have a swap and we decided to knit these summer grocery bags. This purple one is the one I made for my mother for Mother's Day. I filled it with a lobster (bagged and wrapped so it wouldn't leak on this) and the ingredients she needed to cook her meal.

I also made this white one for my friend in the swap. We haven't given them out yet so I can't say who it is for!

This is the first bag I made. It was for my friend Cathy for her

birthday. I filled her bag with a recipe book I made her and all the ingredients to make a spinach artichoke dip, including the dish to bake it in.

These bags are so fun and easy to knit. I also made a blue one for Britt but I haven't taken a picture of it.
Right now I have a yellow one on my needles. It is going to be an end of the year gift for Tim's teacher. I'm hoping to fill it will some summer items. I am going to put a beach towel, sun screen, and maybe a gift certificate to a book store in it.
take care,

Dawn, how do you find time for all that knitting. I love those bags and your gifts inside are even more special.

Thanks for stopping by to read my posts. I hope you are right about my flowers. I'll keep everyone posted.

Take care, Jeanneoyyhzk
